THE GOD DELUSION
THE SCIENCE DELUSION
Science is being constricted by assumptions that have, over the years, hardened into dogmas. Such dogmas are not only limiting, but dangerous for the future of humanity. According to these principles, all of reality is material or physical; the world is a machine, made up of inanimate matter; nature is purposeless; consciousness is nothing but the physical activity of the brain; free will is an illusion; God exists only as an idea in human minds, imprisoned within our skulls. The jacket of Dr. Sheldrake's Science Delusion.
Since the death of Christopher Hitchens, the unspoken leader of "The Four Horsemen" (HERE), Dr. RICHARD DAWKINS (evolutionary biologist, Oxford), is arguably the world's most outspoken and eloquent atheist apologist. Using the mantle of "science" as the foundation of the pulpit for his anti-creation / anti-design books, lectures, and debates, Dawkins is in many ways, the polar opposite of Sheldrake. His most popular book (a runaway bestseller with over 2 million copies in print) was called "The God Delusion". Sheldrake tackles Dawkins' ideas of what orthodox science is, head on.
What I want people to glean from this post is that "Science" cannot be trusted --- or at least it cannot be trusted completely. What was yesterday's "scientific fact" is today's laughing stock. Furthermore, science is all too often bought and paid for by the person(s) with the most money. In other words, "Truth" is decided by the highest bidder (HERE and HERE are great examples of this). Unfortunately, this is particularly true when it comes to the medical and pharmaceutical fields (Dr. Sheldrake's 10th point). Can we trust Big Pharma to do the right thing as far as the public health is concerned? Are you joking me? Read SOME OF THESE POSTS and come to your own conclusions.
